With all of the rain around it’s almost impossible to keep moisture out of your boat console. It may only rain for five minutes but I can tell you the water just seems to get in. In order to help the moisture situation I always use a canister of Damp Rid. It’s a life changer when it comes to mildew.
Peel off the lid and simply set it inside your console. As it absorbs moisture an indicator line will show itself as to the full level. When the bucket is fully used I simply throw it out and replace it.
This has saved me tons of hours cleaning my console of those mildew spots. By using this product you are also protecting your fuse panels and electronic equipment. I get them at Home Depot.
Keep your boat tight!
